Update on the ActivityOwner.Com MindManager Add-ins

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

I wanted to provide an update on my project of converting tools on the activityowner.com site to MindManager Add-ins. The wiki.activityowner.com now has three independent stand-alone add-ins installs with domains that point to them: http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=MindReader, http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=Mark_Task_Complete http://map2excel.com, and of course http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=OutLinker. Each add-in is really stand-alone now and will be less intimidating for new users […]

Any Interest in an ActivityOwner Tools Add-in for the Ribbon Toolbar?

Friday, March 11th, 2011

The blog has been relatively quiet for past several months so I’m not sure how many regular readers and tool users are swinging by the site or following by email, RSS, or twitter, but here is a question: How much interest do you have in an add-in that adds an “ActivityOwner Tools” menu to the […]

MindManager 9 Task Date Issue accommodated in ResultsManager 2.9.2/1 (Part 6)

IN Part 5 of the series we enumerated some of the issues that emerged for ResultsManager users with the new ways that MindManager 9 handles task dates.

MindManager Project Management Part 4 — Project Planning

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

In Part 2, we had generated a rough outline of actions to be taken to address issues with Task dates in MindManager 9: I left off at that point with a “Translate brainstorm into action plan @maps”, which pops up in my daily action dashboard as a reminder to return to the project. When I […]

MindManager Project Management Part 2 – Brainstorming

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

A few months back when I polled readers on “What is the next action for activityowner.com“, the two leading responses were “Tutorials on writing macros” and “examples of how I use the tools”. I figured coping with the current MindManager Task Date issue provides a good case study to start to address the later. In […]

MindManager Project Management Part 1 – Definition

Saturday, August 28th, 2010
